Unfortunate History We Have to Watch.

It’s like watching a train crash knowing the people on it are going to die.

Such is America today.

We are seeing two old men possible geriatric who should be on nursing homes fighting each other’s ideology’s for a chance to pick over a dying carcass that cannot be revived until it reaches flat bottom.

Only when it reaches bottom will the entire nation realise “Shit we may all have to work at this together to get out of this “ a philosophy usually used after a war, a national tragedy, that requires nation building.

I know I’m dreaming, it ant going to happen. This America version we have now is a pack of self centred wanna be individual capitalists who would crawl over their grandparents dead bodies to make a buck or be successful. Empathy or ethics is not a requirement to achieve that goal but the lack of them justifies the goal at all costs.

It’s the American dream , wealth and fortune will always prevail over truth and justice, and that’s not racists it’s applies to all citizens and accepted as part of life….Until some section of the society burrs up and then it will be regarded as enemy of the state, regardless of which Marfia is in government at the time.

I used to despair watching Fox ,CNN, and others until I realised to accept these divisions only adds to the problem and does nothing for the nation other than increases the ratings along with the hate factor.

Dumb as Dog Shit in Australian terms along with the fanatics they the media create. The oldest trick in the book is splitting the nation, used by despots like Hitler, Mussolini, Starlin in propaganda blitzes to convert a nation to dictatorships. That’s fact and it’s happening as we speak in America now.

They say democracy is a great vehicle to gain power because after your in power it’s easy to get off and then follow self interest of survival and ideology.

If you can’t see that happening in America right now your brain dead, but I suppose with a population of 5% still believing the earth is flat, the entire population of Australia count in Australia illiterate or to the equivalent of not passing primary school you can’t expect lateral thinking at any level let alone critical thinking.

The national policy of keep them dumb and feed the bullshit and tell them it’s cake is alive and well.

Let’s keep it simple..

A nation that willingly sacrifices their youth in was that only makes the wealthiest wealthy for a flag and sympathy for a month, what sort of a nation tolerates that without question says a lot for the National IQ.

I can hear the cries now, you don’t know our culture, or our constitution, and I probably know as much or more than joe citizen without having to be told by some politician, and by the way how many countries has America forced its influence upon them without any regard to its citizens?

Getting back to the Geriatric Giants struggling to stay relevant, one struggling to fight off the ageing process that might be able to be hid if office is won the other with a literary level of a schoolchild, a typical little rich boy with no empathy or moral boundaries and a pathological liar which qualities fit exactly into the all American persona of success, artfully disguised as man of the street for the masses.

What a fucking choice!!!!

They will pick one flunky, the result will only change the trajectory of the crash, Trump will not accept any result other the his so regardless the choices are a nation that the rest of the world will abandon until the realisation that since he,Trump, has taken office the world is making its own arrangements without America, it’s capitalism threats and influence will kill its rural sectors and manufacturing so it will be selling to itself…. DER Donald and China doesn’t care about your infantile tariffs it’s source elsewhere or make it themselves.

Now Biden,,, well civil war begs and total breakdown of civil authorities. Wars within states, within communities, races, religions, encouraged by Trump in fact probably sponsored.

Even if Biden is elected the divide will not be addressed unless it becomes a total land slide and even if that happens their constitutional arrangements can manipulate the people’s will via bias courts or lawmakers, making democracy a joke by giving way to political puppets of corrupt capitalists.

It would be totally ignorant and self indulgent if I did not say Australia is not going down the same track about 3 years behind but suffering the same symptoms under the Morrison government. Every time Trump farts Morrison takes deep breaths and spills the bile here.

Our phoney PM is nothing more than a used car salesmen, full of slogans and motherhood statements without substance.

A buy a car with a free bumper bar, about sums up his leadership skills.

And our Opposition, not clear on how they know how cut the mustard trying to walk the middle ground or find the middle ground, that is if the middle ground is where the party wants to position itself for some sort of traction.

In both countries Murdock Press is the toxic cancer to any form of democracy, and until that cancer is defeated true democracy will never prevail. Until we have journalism that hold every politician to account regardless of ideology we will never be more than pawns of the loudest voice, which makes it easy for the ignorant and ill informed, conspiracies and all. Those splits suits the empowered and takes the heat off the incompetence in responsible government.

It’s all a game and you are the sucker, if YOU choose.

Sad but quite foreseeable unfortunately, as we sit back and watch those trains get closer in America and it’s a test if the points are changed on Australia’s tracks.

A Unconventional Observation

One can’t avoid the unabridged extravagance of the political party’s in America in a time where their people are dying in thousands daily, millions out of work, typhoons devastating parts of the nation, and racial civil unrest at boiling point, and all the leaders focus is on showing who is winning the TV ratings.

The rationality of county and people first is non existent, it’s politics first, and having god on there side.

Apparently good people ?

America has and probably will always have the ethos of the The End always justifies the Means” be it politics, or the great American dream and its celebrated, selectively ignoring who or what was collateral damage getting to the top, and woe behold anybody who reminds or remembers those who have been unfortunate enough to be road kill on that journey to greatness.

To an outsider, an Australian, one who has a social conscience helps me draw comparisons between cultures with sometimes stark.

My country is no way pristine perfect, in fact it has dark history never spoken about, denied and obnoxious by those who choose to project or history as a colonial masterpiece.

Sound familiar? America had the same colonial founding, genocided their indigenous races, and destroyed any evidence of that holocaust,in fact celebrated it, and continued to do so. Australia exactly the same.

Now seeing the similarities of those who celebrate and profit, to those who choose to repair and build is remarkably the way the political parties philosophy’s line up in both nations.

All of the contenders espouse to be “The People’s Party” but that definition is absolute bullshit when you look at who sponsors the puppets they put in leather.

You all know what comes next so I won’t bore you with my left leaning opinions on political donations corrupting our governments on a daily basis, and why that influence must be diluted if a democracy is to be truly experienced by and for the people they “espouse” their party’s represent.

There is no doubt the world will go into a capitalist lead depression after the COVID-19 repercussion OR governments can adopt a people based economy where citizens well-being are put before the corporate monopoly’s.

If the latter is a option the corporate neoliberals will open the coffers with a onslaught of propaganda of tales of socialism, lawlessness, scare tactics similar to the present spin taking place in the lead up American election as we speak.

We cannot leave out the conspiracy sector that caters for the blissfully ignorant. Fuelled by boogie man stories many have not grown up from their bedtime stories as it’s often fits their IQ of batshit crazy.

Yes, media love their stupidity as it gives them a cheap headline and surprise , surprise the majority of it printed in the Murdock press.

I won’t start there today either as the less oxygen they get the better we all are

Trump Armorers making ready

In closing Trump has just finished his acceptance speech and to me without dissecting every word he said, the set he is standing on, the tone of the moment reminds me of a call to arms I’ve seen under the early Hitler movement. Bias no, recognising history could be repeating …. guilty ..

Murdock Butchers our Local Newspapers

For those who are not so News aware the Murdock Press has made the decision to cease all hard copy news papers to the regional and country areas across Australia and go digital.

This action in effect sends the little and older generations into news darkness as many have no IT or basic computer knowledge.

This may have been self inflicted by some granted as they refused to grow with the times and others unable to grow due to educational limits.

With all that’s said, the facts are people will loose the fabric that binds smaller communities together, a lifestyle that is incomprehensible to the self centred generations living their little boxes with make believe acquaintances online, many unable to communicate face or face let alone read and comprehend a news article.

A bit savage you may think? Yes but truthful and if you need proof, spend a hour or two on a polling booth and see humanity in its raw form doing something that should effect their lives and their family’s.

You will be amazed at the ignorance not only of the political systems but of general manners expected of a human being.

That said as true to form as you can get from Murdock the said they’d keep regional and small papers on takeover from APN and they lied, nothing new again from these bottom feeders of toxic text, and they will expect you to buy the Courier Mail if you want a hands on paper which in fact is nothing more than a LNP newsletter as I have stated many times and subedited out or simply consigned to the junk mail.

Truth and Murdock should never be put in the same sentence, as you now know from their actions.

In my case my editorial days may be limited as many times before my View does not sit with the owners ideology and I have been extremely lucky to have a editor who still feels balanced reporting is a key factor in a democracy, but like the QT she too is moving and many of the contributors may join me in the junk mail due to our views clashing with the owners ideology also.

That’s life but it does not help those who have been thrown into darkness, those businesses who’s adds were accessible freely will not have a presence of picking up a paper, the sporting body who wants any press to help them survive, the cocky who wants the cattle prices, the auctioneer, the church, the garage sale, and you can go on all gone to the iPad or smart phone of the fortunate.

To be honest I’m looking at community radio as a service, not a competitive entity but NFP (non for profit) organisation and any other media stream APP to try and compensate the losses, and any ideas please fill in at the bottom of this blog. Also Periscope the live App has been mentioned.

And I cannot close without mentioning the silence of the Hanson’s, the Katters, the Nationals all supposed to represent country people but obviously terrified to upset their puppet master Murdock, their absolute silence says why we as a nation need to govern ourselves for ourselves not run the agenda of a non tax paying overseas jerk , but not one of the conservatives have the guts to call him out. Political Harlots. All looking for that headline from Rupert.

Mr. Bean Masterstrokes

Why is it that whenever you think we as a nation are getting some sort of consensus some see it advantages to seek to divide?

Its beyond my recall when our states and federal governments has put politics aside yet we have examples of late where the true characters of some who need conflict to elevate their flailing or failed profiles.

I will not back away from the fact our State Government has undergone surgery and reshuffles and resignations have taken place locally as is done by all of Political parties in their tenure as government and we were reminded when a former State Member and now Somerset councillor rose from his Ipswich hideaway to weight in on fractional pranks, a game he played and lost in his one term debacle under Cambell Newman.

Then we have Mr Christensen the self appointed Foreign Minister who when he is in the country declares takes aim at our biggest export nation China without thinking things like international diplomacy protocols exist and the fallout of that ignorance. Totally out of his pay grade, and intellectual capacity.

Then we have Mr Dutton, the cruise ship king lecturing a treasurer on the quantitive steps to keep Queenslanders employed and Tourists industries fluid, and outback air service retained after himself failing to count his own caucus to see if he had the numbers to challenge for PM, a Mr. Bean masterstroke.

If we are to build back faith in our political processes and democracy we could start by sticking to your appointed day job, serving your constitiuents well and not grandstanding.

Why America, Why??

At the risk of being told I know nothing again abut America one can only surmise that the once greatest nation in the world ,if you listen to the them, that is is crashing into a totally failed state. #Failure

I appreciate they were totally disenchanted with politics after Obama, and they punished themselves by jumping on the Trump train OR were that that lethargic they thought Clinton would shit in and didn’t bother to get off their arse to vote.

Either way they would have elected a fraud. #Failure

No doubt Clinton was the establishmentarian puppet and following Obama would be a tough act to follow. Looking at the Obama stint one thing is certain, Americans broadly could not accept a black president event though he was a Blue the undertones within his own party reflected a racial culture deeply Imbedded, and how he completed his tenure without a attempt on the life’s of him or his family was remarkable.

No one can imagine, even the media the internal networks that have vested interests in both sides so it’s the average Joe Citizen runs a solid last when it comes to the earning a priority from government, yet they reject any government support in health or wellbeing as some sort of socialist plot exemplified by fact government has outsourced responsibility to big businesses who sponsor their election campaigns. No it’s not corrupt at all, trust them, so I fully understand their attitude. A #Failure in human rights as not all can be privileged to have any Health cove so they will die in the gutter.

By keeping the masses dumbed down, a state that is easy when you control the media coverage into minimal outlets all within America you can sell the masses like mushrooms in the dark and feed them bullshit., particularly when you have a illiteracy rate numbering higher than the entire Australian population. Another #Failure their society.

I won’t go down the road of equality to all because that is a impossible dream, be it equal rights for women, races, sexes even religions, educating the masses and cultures is enormous but our country Australia #Failure gets a #Failure that category if the truth is known.

Enter Trump and his Drain the Swamp, Make America Great slogan and the destruction of the establishment became a obsession as Hitler did when he took his dictatorship, exterminating opposition and controlling media or eliminating it, and it worked until enter #covid_19 at distraction at the time, a plot to overthrow him, while his total focus was on getting the stock market up to keep his backers bankrolled, while selling himself as a man of the downtrodden, and they bought it hook line and sinker and still do.

This virus however has highlighted the fact Trump has Mental health issues magnified by the heat in the kitchen, exposing a psychopath with split personalities and actions and whoa behold anybody who gets in the way of a personality governed by a poll or media report or a professional who tells truth to the masses in contradiction to his spin. A #Failure sheer basic democracy that extends to what will be genocide as a result of sheer incompetence.

So what of the future or the way forward for the Trumps Titanic ?

Personally I see no way out in the near future. Politically I believe Trump will continue as Biden is a absolute #Failure as a person, a politician, and a leader,and should never be the nomination but that’s America #Failure in itself and while they continue to elect senile old men to their congress and presidency the nation will be continually locked in the past as by keeping there outdated constitutional beliefs waiting for the British to re invade.

The Republicans will eventually tire or he of them and he will move to his own Party or Cult to survive and mobilise his followers to a civil rebellion if he looks like being defeated, and who would back Biden not getting the nomination at the big conference and them accept a nomination from the floor. Wow the odds of that are about as far out as Trump starting a war to deflect the masses when the true death toll of #covid_19 is revealed.

Someone’s God better Bless America it’ll need it real soon.

Let’s be The Adults and Not Play The Blame Game.

Like on the farm you just have to accept animals do what they do as part of life. In politics it’s the same. 

In a world that is in kayos, millions being infected and death now accepted as  the norm, some of our illustrious leaders are looking for blame. 

Waisting  vital political oxygen on it where the focus should be on survival of their citizens shows they just can’t get away from their own personal politics of political survival first. 

There will be plenty of time later to do the risk assessments and cause and effect processes but now it’s time  leadership and bi partisan behaviour at the highest level. The infantile behaviour of Trump trying to deflect his incompetence mirrors a Romper Room episode gone bad, yet it seems our government wants to join his sandpit as a show of lapdog solidarity. 

We should stand with the adults in the room and get on with sticking process that so far is saving lives but this movement by our foreign minister sends the cynics a clear message that we may follow America in trading our standards of protection off for capital gain regardless of lives lost. 

We are a intelligent race us Aussies so let’s not get ahead of the game, beat the virus first then rebuild our economy and social structures with zest from the bottom up.

Let’s Lead and not Follow.

America is Drowning.

Rarely do we have the opportunity to witness history being played out in real time especially when it’s a nation that is descending into self destruction.

The once keeper of free world standards has set about dismantling its legal system, it’s social justice system, even its democratic and constitutional base to appease a president with a vocabulary level and word count that of a Grade 6 Australian child.

This nation has been dumbed down to a point where professional people with a lifetime of experience in international protocols, law, and other civic experiences have surrendered or been dismissed in favour of people who respond to a tweet, and the sad thing is it only going to get worse.

I have no political allegiance to any party in America but when it’s decisions effect my country I will weigh in, and I’m afraid if we do not highlight the descendency we will follow as we have done in its ascendancy of the past. Comparisons of cultural standards, populations are far apart with the base standard of illiteracy in America equals our entire population, Flat earth believers, one in 6 equals , the population of several states here, and our Medicare is regarded as something out of a communist propaganda book that they can’t read anyway but Fox tells them so.

Most of both houses of government qualify for Nursing Home status not Governing status and the simple fact the are prepared to sacrifice their youth in military conflicts around the world lends credence to nepotism of the upper classes to retain power and money regardless of which side politics you follow. It’s a great plan, even if they do survive they are heroes for a day then abandoned as they were conscripted without formal education past basic stuff. Keep them dumb and feed them bullshit and give them a flag in hand or on their coffin. GBA.

As I watch this self demise I’m not sure if America can ever return to a status the world respects as it turns inward and I can see its trending on building a wall a watertight wall around America but then it will drown in its own sewage.

Let’s Pause and Think for Ourselves.

Blame is important and strategic, and that is now the norm in today’s political narrative across the nation and it all depends on who’s team you choose to align yourself with is only the view you will hold.

This is a dangerous climate for truth. Whoops did I say Climate?

Be it Climate change, fossil fuels, renewable energy or migration across the board each and every subject is either funded or supported by some big corporations who’s basic existence is profit, money and we the parrots of policy are their mouthpieces following their set narrative and some of us just do it blindly once we are indoctrinated.

This is not fertile ground for objective and lateral thinking.

Every one of us has a opinion but that should never stop us from questioning that opinion when presented with a alternative, something the manipulators do not want us to do.

This “With me or your Against me” spin is the divide and rule strategy played out since mankind evolved and has been recognised as a cancer for open democracy and the media should be the circuit breaker delivering unbiased truth and accountabilities regardless of who is in ownership.

That information source is a a factor and a player we the consumer has to judge weather it has its own agenda. Big responsibility I know and for some just too hard so they go along like cattle to the slaughter rather think before I speak or more importantly vote.

Chemello’s Legacy leaves Our City in Good Stead.

I spent the time, I read the line, all 44 pages. (See Below)

Greg Chemello’s report was extensive but not surprising by those who had genuine concerns over many years of getting feedback which many regarded as just sour grapes or politically motivated.

I feel genuine remorse for those newer councillors who were tainted by the dismissal, and I could accept that incorrect and illegal processes they were introduced to on appointment were accepted unknowingly.

The positive thing is all the network divisional brotherhoods developed over years wheeling and dealing are gone. Transparency will be restored to all ratepayers and employees without the fear of repercussions and the fact that it’s a totally new ballgame will make it very interesting observations to those former councillors who thought they were untouchable if they decide to renter the game on a equal footing with the new bloods on a brand new playing field.

Regardless I feel it’s important to spend the time and read the report yourself and judge what were the mistakes then we owe it to our great city never to become complacent in holding our elected representatives to account every day not just polling day.

Thanks Greg, and his team.
